My thoughts and prayers go out to all of the good people in Missouri. The tornado that hit Joplin on Sunday was absolutely devastating. I was just in southwestern Missouri last week, visiting a school in Branson. The people I met on my trip were warm and wonderful. The land was beautiful. My condolences go out to everyone who lost family, friends, & homes in the disaster.

Thank you to Cynthia Matzat for arranging my Missouri visit and for her brilliant organizational skills & hospitality. Here we are having a chicken & dumplings dinner at Lambert's Cafe - a fun establishment where your dinner rolls are literally thrown at you by the wait staff.
